Cars Of Famous Computer Geeks

I don't know if it's my fascination with famous techie tycoons or if I have an inner fetish for things that make me go vroom, but when Automotoportal compiled a list of famous geeks and their rides, I needed to know more. When money isn't an issue for these well-known gazillionaires, it's interesting to see what make and model of cars they take to the streets.
Bill Gates of Microsoft cruises around in a 1988 Porsche 959 Coupe, while Apple mogul Steve Jobs drives a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. Larry Ellison of Oracle uses his Bentley Continental Flying Spur for joyrides and Michael Dell of Dell computers speeds around in a 2008 Porsche Boxster. Sweet rides all around, but I kinda figured Jobs to be a vintage car guy too. Now if only they'd take some advice from New York Times technology columnist and CBS news correspondent David Pogue and drive a Toyota Prius - being earthy is just as hot. Just ask Leo.

cool post, i totally thought jobs would've been either (1) more futuristic or (2) more vintage... contradictory, I know, but still...

I'd just like to point out that the yellow Porsche is NOT a 2008. The teardrop headlights give it away.

The problem with hybrids for me is that the way they look doesn't appeal to me. If they had a car I wanted that was eco friendly, I'd buy it.
